The summer can be fun for kids, but it can also be hot. Sometimes hot weather can be enjoyable, but it can also be dangerous. Sunburns and dehydration are both real risks during the summer months. Here are a couple tips to stay cool this summer while having a blast.
- Stay hydrated
Staying hydrated is key to keeping your body temperature regulated. It is crucial that kids drink plenty of water everyday, especially when the weather is as hot as it is. There are apps on your phone that can help you remember to drink water, one of which is Plant Nanny, which is fun for kids, too. The app gives you a plant to grow. In order to grow your plant, you must drink a certain amount of water and record it in the app. It is a fun way to remember to stay hydrated and highly recommended for kids.
- Stay Inside
While it is important for kids to get outside and get active, they shouldn’t be outside for too long, especially when the sun is high. Plan some indoor activities for kids that are both fun and active. One fun activity is to bring your kids to Rainbow Roller Rink. Come for a day of skating and snacks. Your kids can challenge their friends in different activities and experience the health benefits of roller skating. Summer is also a great time to exercise kids’ minds! Reading is important in developing vocabulary and communication skills. Encourage your child to read at least 30 minutes each day. This will keep them inside and cool. When they complete their daily reading, reward them with a trip to Rainbow Roller Rink!
